Before inserting or emptying the Silja Cup, please wash your hands thoroughly.
Please disinfect the Silja Cup for three minutes in boiling water before using it for the first time.
Heat water in a small pan on the hob until it reaches boiling point. Place the Silja Cup in the pan so that it is covered by the water. Wait by the pan during the boiling process or set a kitchen timer and remove the pan from the hob after three minutes.
The boiling process can be carried out in the microwave. Place the Silja Cup in a suitable container and heat on medium power for three minutes.
The Silja Cup must be removed and emptied at least every 8–12 hours. To do this, rinse the cup out with water or wipe it with paper. We also recommend washing it briefly with a liquid soap.
After every menstrual cycle, the Silja Cup should be disinfected in boiling water for three minutes and be kept clean until it is next used.
With good care and proper use, the material of your Silja Cup can last up to 10 years. To use your cup for a long time, you should handle it with care. Avoid harsh cleaning detergents or abrasive cleaners . These will attack the surface of your Silja Cup. It is best to use soaps that you would also use for your body.
Please do not store the Silja Cup in an airtight container. A cloth bag is ideal for this purpose.
